Winch Outs

Pitbull Towing - Winch Outs 2

If we did not do winch outs, we would not be a tow truck company. To free a vehicle from such a sticky situation can involve a lot of bits and pieces. As much as the person performing the winch outs needs a lot of training, car knowledge, equipment and tools, sometimes the best way to get a car out of jam like a winch out, is to use a bit of gut instinct. Our drivers would not be working for us if they did not have that proper winch out instinct. For even the engineer like thinking that goes into winch outs sometimes the true art of it cannot be taught.


What is a Winch Out?

It is one of those days that is a little slushy, until you take a drive into a more country like setting and the slushy snow. Forgetting what kind of car you have you turn into that little driveway at your friends that isn’t cleared yet, and that is when it happens. You keep pressing on the gas putting the car into drive, then neutral then back again to drive. The wheels are just spinning and digging even more of a hole. The winch out is getting the car out of this situation. Using a plank or some sort of material for the wheel to grip on when it spins so it can rise out and the car become unstuck.


Not only Snow

Winch outs do not only happen in the winter. It is not something specific to the cold or snow. Winch outs are also often needed in the summer, when it is muddy or if a car drivers into very loose sand.  This means that our winch out experts here in Long Island have a vast knowledge of the elements they have to work with, as well as the seasons and what materials and tools will best assist in getting the car unstuck.
